. white house letters to senators said u.s. intelligence assesses "with varying degrees of confidence that the syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale, specifically sarin." the disclosure put new pressure on president obama to take action. he met today with the visiting king of jordan, and said the findings are preliminary. >> we're going to be pursuing a very vigorous investigation consulting with our partners in the region as well as the international community and the united nations to make sure we are investigating this as effectively and as quick, quickly as we can. it's obviously horrific as it is when motors are being fired on civilians and people are being indiscriminately killed. to use weapons of mass destruction on civilian populations that is going to be a game changer. >> brown: the president has also said any use of chemical weapons would cross a red line. and on thursday, republican senator john mccain said, "it's been crossed." >> the president of the united states said that this would be a red line, if they used chemical weapons. those stocks of chemi

term. >> right. i have a scene in the book president obama called ben bernanke over to the white house in august 2009 the wednesday evening right before bernanke flew out to jackson hole. but it was secret for several dates. bernanke, it was only announced when the president was on vacation the next week in massachusetts. the question this year is how quickly does the president move on finding a new nomination, whether it's ben bernanke or someone else. it will clearly be somewhere around that time, late august, september you. don't want to wait too long because you have to get the person confirmed before bernanke's term ends in january of 2014. i think it's really the biggest decision barack obama has to make this year. >> neil irwin, thank you very much. writer of "the alchemist." tomorrow we'll speak with randy kroszner about the fed, the statement and the health of the economy. >>> still ahead on the program, banking budgets and badges. why the girl scouts is no longer just about selling cookies. >>> but first, a look at how commodities fared today, including gold,hich had it

marks the 100th day of president obama's second term in office, this morning he held a conference at the white house and explained his stance on the use of chemicals weapons in syria. >> what we now have is evidence that chemical weapons have been used inside of syria, but we don't know how they were used, when they were used, who used them, we don't have a chain of custody that estlishes what exactly happened, and when i am making decisions about america's national security and the potential for taking additional action in response to chemical weapon use, i have got to make sure i have got the facts. >> rose: and he condemned congress for stalling efforts to close guantanamo bay. >> i have asked my team to review everything that is currently being done in guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively and i am going to reengage in congress to try and make the case that this is not something that is in the best interests of the american people. the idea that we would still maintain forever a group of individuals who have not been tried, that is contrary to who we are, it is c

one minority they could start with. [laughter] hello? a trial run.s >> president obama at the white house correspondents' dinner. sarah palin said it was pathetic. too much hollywood glitz, not enough exciting political figures like max baucus or chuck grassley. [laughter] think, to a certain extent, the criticism of the dinner has become as annoying as the dinner itself. it is one night a yea this is not a town that is saturated in glamour, shall we say. i can live with it. >> sarah palin call did a nerd prom. >> i guess maybe it is, but there sure are a lot of people at it. i decided to go because i had not been there for years. it was a mob scene. if he did not station yourself at the entrance to see the glamorous people, you did not see the glamorous people. >> how about the president's performance? >> i thought the president did well. >> he did better than well. >> i'm sorry, i guess he did better than well. i will return to my own observations now. i did that realized. i thought he did well. i will leave the opinion to the other experts. ownou are entitled to your opinion. >>

respect. george w. bush has been a very private former president. twice barack obama won the white house by running against him, in '08 and again in '12. he's never carped. he never criticized. i think that has played well with people. it's hard to look back and say that iraq was anything other than a disaster, and and you can see the shadow and echoes of iraq in the disiks right now as we approach syria or anyplace else-- iran. it's-- you know, that is-- that was a defining moment for this country's foreign policy. >> woodruff: and for his presidenciy? >> yeah, i think it was the poeps-9/11. iraq and afghanistan, it's hard to defend the iraq war as we see it right now. i do think preventing another terror attack, creating that apparatus, that's on the plus side of the ledger. i'm not sure it will outweigh when history judges but i do think he gets credit for that. >> the one thing i do agree with david with is mitt romney lost in 2012 in large part because he at no point did not show any empathy. by 81-18 voters on election day said barack obama cares more about people like me than mitt
